Here villages have taken shape. Today one talks about the villages Djupsund, Teugmo, Kvimo, Lövsund, Brudsund, Särkimo, Västerö and Österö. In the outer archipelago there is Mikkelinsaaret.

There are good connections to the archipelago. Bridges to the mainland are located both in Hellnäs to Kaitsor and at Öjskatan to Maksamaa mainland. Österövägen connects all the villages to each other. In 2019 there were around 450 inhabitants in the archipelago. In the summer the population increases several fold, since there are many holiday homes in the area. There are approximately 1100 holiday homes.
